My computer is back up and running, however the f button is sticky, and well it is the f button. I hope to catch all missing f's but i not you know why. I have been working my little fingers to the bone, well not really, but I have been sewing a lot.
I have to say people really and truly do not understand my fascination with sewing and fabric. I see it when they look at me like I am the craziest person they know (which is saying a LOT). I really don't care though lol! I have something I love to do, and it makes me happy. I am however constantly asked about selling something. I have yet to get into this realm of things. Frankly it scares the shit out of me (sorry for the language). I really do love the relaxation part the most and I am terrified that when it becomes work, well it will be work. I have decided that I think I will sell bags/totes and maybe small items. I will not take custom orders and will only sell from inventory. I think at 1st I will sell on social media, and then a friend has a shop that she really wants me to put some bags in. If that goes well I guess I will take it to Etsy. I plan to really well plan this out. I will make a few bags and time everything and document all materials used. I am not about to do something I am not all that crazy about (charging people) and lose money right off the bat. Hence the not selling of quilts. I just feel it would be very difficult, in my area, to sell a quilt and not lose money on the fabric cost alone. Anyway that is the plan and I will keep you posted.
What have I been working on:
Jena Tote by sotak handmade. I tested this pattern and LOVE this bag. It is so roomy, and I get so many compliments on it. As you can see I used my horded Nordika fabric by Jeni Baker for Art Gallery. This is probably my favorite fabric if there is such a thing.
We did a lovely kids swap of trick or treat bags this time. Here is what my lovely made:
How stinking cute is this. She made it lined and we just kinda make it up. It is reversible and I would be happy to tick or treat with such a bag! The bag she received was equally as cute and as you can see she really liked it!crossroads denim. This stuff is Amazing I mean for real.
The lighting is not great as it is dark, but look how wonderful the quilting looks on the denim.
I have a quilt that I had MSQC quilt for me when I was there or the last retreat I went to. I have had it back for some time and bound about 1/4 of it. I have been go go go! I really need to get that done.
Ok so congrats on making it this far or well just scrolling down. It is giveaway time. I said in the last blog post it is a decent one. Here are the pics, and I do apologize, but I can not send across the way. Postage is crazy expensive these days. As bad as I hate it, open to US only :(!
This is seriously beautiful fabric and I hate to part with it. Leave me a comment. Anything will do and if you follow tell me how for an extra entry. I will leave it open till Nov 7th and let my daughter pick a number between 1 and whatever the amount is. It is the youth hunt this weekend so maybe the luck will rub off on her :)!
Thanks again for hanging in there with me! Have a great week everyone!
